  1. Just call it Norva Beach, there I did it, identity crisis solved.
  2. Macarther Center still has failed to innovate or move with the times. I believe the mall has very bad management thinking that that location alone would carry the mall. I knew the mall had bad management when they started to lose food court options and in response rushed to fill spaces with subpar offerings (like that chicken place that used to be in the corner by the movie theater) either it's being ran into the ground dilibretly or someone doesn't know how to do their job. Not to mention the malls awful design and waste of space when it comes to street presence and being inviting. Declining retail sales is a cop out & everyone knows it. Lynnhaven got rid of its second story for a reason focusing on quality over quantity and added stores that draw people with entertainment such as Dave and busters etc. Pembroke even redesigned itself somewhat. Mac mall management has just been milking it, what kind of upgrades have been put into the mall since it's been opened? MAC mall used to have jeepers, animal jungle stuff that drew people. Their management will not change just being realistic Mac mall is gonna slide into a dangerous downward pattern then the city will get involved making things worse. I really want star wood to prove me wrong. I've been all over the country and the best managed malls that I've seen were all run by Simon (the people that built the outlet mall). Here I am ranting again
  3. Didn’t know if these had been posted here yet, but the renderings look pretty good. Chrysler is even getting redone, srry for the low quality they were screen shots of a video on mobile.

    Norfolk Development 2

    Seems like the apartments in the arts District are going up?
  5. People drive far and wide for that Meeeh Buffalo Wild Wings they will do the same for Apple Bees, people love a chain. Seems like chain restaurants do really well downtown.
  6. I don't see why HR would be a bad choice, most people don't know this but all of the cities and even some outlying counties have a pretty extensive fiber network already built out by the municipalities. It's one of the few things all the cities actually work together on. They are constantly expanding them and are municipal controlled, so in reality that Amazon HQ could go anywhere in HR the infrastructure is already there. The graphic I posted might be a little outdated but you get the gist this is a well connected region. Wish I could find the right graphic of the network that I've seen in the past, but oh well. Virginia Beach's Oceanic cable only enhances this network.

    Norfolk Off-Topic

    Haven't seen these posted. They are preliminary renderings but I am confident they they will not change to much. These are in East beach luxury apartments with ground level retail. It looks pretty dense over there already these will just add to that effect. http://www.norfolk.gov/AgendaCenter/ViewFile/Item/3352?fileID=7192

  9. I'm pretty sure by digging down they would be adding a second elevated seating (deck) level. Also talked to an architect who is very familiar with the structure. Thick Interior columns were added to make the Project manager at the time feel better about the support of the structure. But in reality the structure was designed so that everything including interior columns can be removed because the outside trusses keep the entire structure supported. Its all about how radical the renovation is going to be and how much money they will be willing to put into it. I could easily see the scope at 15,000 seating. Currently there is alot of wasted space

  11. In the state of the city address Mayor Kenny Alexander stated that construction on these would begin this summer. Not sure if 3rd renderings of it have been posted yet. -2017 4.5 acre site in downtown Norfolk, VA 126 units in 8 buildings: – 1 Bedroom Units 20 – 2 Bedroom Units 80 – 3 Bedroom Units 26 Amenities include a “Cornerstone Lifestyle” clubhouse, pool, and outdoor plaza As part of the St. Paul’s quandrant, worked with Norfolk ARB and City staff VHDA Application EarthCraft platinum certified for energy efficiency.

    Waterside District

    Took some pictures about 2 days ago on my way to ptown via the ferry. Waterside is looking nice so far but I have to say I'm not a fan of the materials in use. I guess I thought they would be using real brick for the fasade and such but oh well. Still looks decent.
